Pottery, Sculpture, Handmade Tiles, the Figure. At RDG Dahlquist Art Studio in Des Moines, Iowa, you can do it all!  We teach a new and expanded program in a fully equipped ceramic studio.  There are classes offered in a variety of topics; from learning how to throw on the potter’s wheel, to handbuilding techniques.  There are also opportunities to access the studio and work independently.  You can fire at both high and low temperature in both gas and electric.  We even have a soda kiln to experiment with surfaces in vapor glazing.  Do you have a project in clay that you have always dreamed of making?  We can help you get there and learn about ceramics along the way. 

Come to visit RDG Dahlquist Art Studio, a creative environment that welcomes all student levels, from beginning through intermediate to advanced.  The new ceramic studio facility is the largest and best equipped in central Iowa and can serve all your educational needs. 

Have fun!  Get dirty!
